Reds trio offered in Dempsey deal
Brendan Rodgers was reportedly
prepared to use Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson or Jose Enrique to try and land Clint Dempsey.
The US forward ending up signing for Tottenham on deadline day but reports claim
that Rodgers was so determined to get his man he was prepared to offload any one of the trio, or possibly
a combination of the three, to try and land his target.
Rodgers had apparently
agreed a swap deal with Fulham regarding Henderson but would have also considered moves involving Downing or Enrique according to the report in the Mail.
The report also claims
that Rodgers was looking to land a new left-back, as back up for Enrique, or as a possible replacement, had he been sold to finance the Dempsey deal.
In the end Dempsey went to Spurs as they offered the right financial package to Fulham to land him and Henderson, Downing and Enrique remain at Anfield.
